Capt. Kane said it sure looked like a trap. No argument from me. Wind near-about honkin up in DE Bay, yet forecasted at 10 knots here? Uh Hu.. Sure.. That forecast of calm a sirens’ song luring you off the beach – then kicking your butt!
What it was though. Saw 15 knots E for a while on the way off and as we began fishing, then it fell out to forecast speed and calmed a good bit.
Beats the Billy Blue Blazes out of what’s coming Sat & Sunday.
Our youthful guest reef builders today were Brayden & Parker, both from Maryland.
Our new Reef Queen, Wendy (doing a great job getting the mail out!) filled a late vacancy this trip. She showed the boys how to get it done too – caught the day’s first limit.
Then young Brayden, Mr. Birthday Boy himself, landed the best sea bass I’ve seen in a long while – caught it by himself fair and square – weighed in at 4.5lbs to take today’s pool money. I’m guessing the boardwalk rides will see heavy action as his pool money diminishes over the weekend.
Ended up with everyone limited & two days coming to get caught up on paperwork.
That’ll have to work.
